  • I gave it to my son. I looked at some of the products in the store geared toward the 6 month and up crowd and it contained wheat as well. I talked to the doctor and he said that if there was a history of a wheat allergy in the family, then I should wait, but if not it would be fine.

  • My 8 month old has eaten them too. He's eaten little bits of lots of stuff, just watch for any kind of allergic reaction like you would normally do, and if he doesn't react badly to them then they are fine.

  • Yea wheat is not a common allergy there is celiac disease which requires a month long diet and blood work tht gives you a maybe or no that you have an intolerance my brother has it and a lot of people don't get the test now and just assume they have it lol so I think its been blown waaaay up just if your worried give her those and don't introduce new food for a week so if she has a reaction you'll knw it that

  • No! They contain wheat, which is an allergy trigger. Wait until your child's first birthday.

    Try puffed rice

  • I wouldn't. Any good healthy table food is far superior to processed. Teeth ARE NOT required my baby girl (1 YEAR) has no teeth and eats whole apples.
    check this out, its worth it. baby led solids particularly the Gil Rapely Article.
